This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and North Metro Fire Rescue District, the Broomfield Police Department and the City and County of Broomfield will host a special 9/11 Memorial Ceremony to honor those lost in the tragedy two decades ago.
Leading up to the 20th anniversary event, North Metro Fire is looking to recognize and share stories from Colorado residents who either lost a loved one in the attacks or who had a personal experience related to the events that took place that day and the weeks that followed. Additionally, the fire district welcomes stories and reflections on 9/11 by Broomfield and Northglenn residents who weren’t closely tied to the tragedy but who would like to share their thoughts as part of a community exhibit to honor the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
Stories will be shared in various ways on social media and in public areas within the fire district. Any area residents who would like to share their story related to 9/11 are invited to contact North Metro Fire Public Information Officer Sara Farris at (303) 252-3017 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
